Hello,

If a refrigerator doesn't cool at all, the problem is often with the basic electrical controls—almost never with a need for a boost of refrigerant.


Do not assume the problem is related to the compressor or the sealed, hermetic system; these types of problems happen only rarely. Your unit may have dirty condenser coils, a door that doesn't seal tightly, or a defective temperature control.
1) Check the cold control. Be sure it is set to "cold." Normally, the temperature inside the refrigerator should be about 37 degrees Fahrenheit.

2) Listen for the freezer fan inside the freezer. When the freezer fan is running, it means the defrost timer and the cold control in the refrigerator are both set to cool.


compressor is located (typically behind or beneath the refrigerator. When the freezer fan is operating, the compressor fan should also be working (most of the time).

4) If one of the fans is not working or the compressor is off, the refrigerator will offer very little cooling or none at all. Call an appliance repairperson.

Hope it helps.

Take care.

My check light keeps coming on my dometic ref in my 5th wheel


I have had this problem also. My experience has been that the propane line to the frig has air in it, especially after not being used for a while. Here's what I do:

1) Make sure the propane tank valve is open.
2) Light one of the burners on the stove. This may take a while but keep the gas on and a lighter at the burner. This is safe becuase as the air purges from the line it just blows the flame (from the ligher) around. Then when the air is purged the gas lights. Let the burner run for a couple of minutes. This sounds a bit odd, but what you are doing is bringing the "gas" close to the frig. The frig does not have to purge all that air as you have already done most of the purging by getting the burner to light. The facory setting for the frig is to stop trying to light after 45 seconds, and the "Check" light comes on.
3) Now try the frig. It may a couple times, but it should light and work fine.

I have found that this technique also helps with lighting the hot water.

New Travel trailer......no fridge!


Unit should still be covered on warranty call dometic directly. The tilting could affect some. If you push the auto button in it should run on electric first if no electric present it then goes to gas. Exception to the rule is if the heating element is not working it does not recognize this so it will stay on electric. Unplug the 110v in the compartment on the outside it should change to gas with in a few seconds. If it does heating element is bad.
